E-commerce site Flipkart is offering iPhone 6 at lowest price on exchange offer, but still you dont prefer to get it, why? read below
Apple just announced the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and a special phone that is called iPhone X to commemorate the tenth anniversary of iPhone. Soon after announcing this year’s iPhones, the old iPhones including the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s Plus get a major price cut. But over and above the slashed price, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are now available at a price as low as Rs 5,999 and Rs 17,999 respectively only on Flipkart.
Wait, what? The iPhone 6 for Rs 5,999. But of course, there is a catch and there is devil in the fine print.
The actual price of the iPhone 6 32GB edition is Rs 25,999 right now on Flipkart. But a lot of consumers are getting emails from the e-commerce site that it can be bought for as low as Rs 5,999. Additionally, Flipkart is also offering a special discount of Rs 3,501, which should get you the iPhone 6 for cheaper still.
So what’s the catch. It is called the exchange offer, and fairly ridiculous one at that. The iPhone 6 will be available at Rs 5,999, but that’s only if you exchange it with a very high-end phone like the iPhone 7 Plus, or may the Galaxy S8. But the question here is why will one exchange an iPhone 7 Plus to get an iPhone 6? No one will, and that is the whole point. The exchange offer is ridiculous and stated price of Rs 5,999 for the iPhone 6 is misleading.
Offers like these are senseless. The reason is simple: why will one give away a premium phone like the Galaxy S8 for a phone that is already outdated. The iPhone 6 is an almost 3 year old phone.
